Teeth in a day are a very quick way to restore the look of a healthy smile, plus give you better functionality than missing teeth ever could. However, they also have some drawbacks to them. One of the bigger drawbacks of using teeth in a day is the fact that your mouth is going to be sore from all of the work being done to it in a short period of time. Some say the healing isn't bad, while others struggle during the healing process. Which is more expected?
Healing After Teeth in a Day
For the most part, people who get teeth in a day are able to go back to their normal range of activities within a day of having the teeth in a day placed. The healing is going to leave your mouth sore, but it is typically completely manageable with simple over-the-counter remedies like Ibuprofen.
During the first few weeks following the procedure, your diet is going to be limited to soft foods. This will include things like soup, yogurt, oatmeal, and cooked vegetables. As your mouth heals, those restrictions will be changed, and eventually lifted.
Your teeth in a day should be totally healed and secure in your mouth over the course of the first few months. You will have a few checkups between when you have the original teeth placed and you complete your healing. During these checkups, your oral surgeon is going to check on the healing, plus give you updates on what restrictions you currently have.
Once all of the healing is complete, you will have a strong, functional smile that you can confidently show off to the world. Don't be afraid of having a sore mouth for a few days, if the results are a confident smile. Find out more from your oral surgeon today!
